for this debate tonight; jobs, the economy, health care. but first, a new distraction for the obama campaign during a critical week. it comes in the form of a video released by "the daily caller" of then-presidential candidate barack obama back in 2007. in it he speaks to a group mostly made up of black pastors. his speech got some coverage at the time he delivered it, but his prepared remarks did not include some of the off-the-cuff, off-prompter moments, if you will, alluding to alleged racism to hurricane katrina and spending decisions made by our elected leaders. our chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live in washington with more. mike? >> reporter: hi, megyn. the tone has attracted some attention with then-candidate obama sounding different as he spoke to a large group of african-american religious leaders in virginia. one major topic was mr. obama trying to contrast the response to hurricane katrina and other high-profile disasters. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget
nation is more than $16 trillion in the red. that is a massive bubble that threatens our entire economy. how do the candidates handle this tomorrow night? let's ask chris stirewalt our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on foxnews.com live, and stewart varney is the host of varney & company on the fox business network. thank you so much for being here. chris i want to start with you. what can either candidate say to grab, you know, america by the lapel and make them understand what each one of them wants to do to change our financial dire straits? >> it's a heck after lot easier for mitt romney on this one since he is the outsider and hasn't been in office and wasn't part of make thag debt and president obama has over seen in fact the unprecedented increase in size of the federal debt, and as a matter of fact in talking to senior people from romney land that is exactly what mitt romney means to do when he gets on that debate stage in denver, is go off the president not just on what romney says are ineffectual policies like the president's healthcare law and stimulus
.2% in august. still, just a short time ago, president obama said today's report shows that the economy is headed in the right direction. >> after losing about 800,000 jobs a month when i took office, we have more jobs and we found out this link at the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. [cheers] [applause] megyn: joining me now is lou dobbs. he is the host of "lou dobbs tonight" on the fox business network. it is good news, says the president? >> it is good news for him. this is as nice of a result that he could have asked for. the bad news is that this is based on the household survey. the unemployment rate. it is figured differently than the payroll number, that revealed only 114,000 jobs were created last month, and megyn, only 10,000 of those jobs were government. megyn: we have been showing the chart of job creation over the past year or so. back in january, you can see it. look where we were back in january and february. then it falls way down. 45,000 jobs in the month of june. now that 114,000. not great to most economists, but not so great. how
of the economy we have seen over the past few years. yet the latest polls show the race in nevada is neck and neck and that is causing -- ed henry live in vegas. hey, ed. >> the president -- they are calling it debate camp in henderson. 20 miles from where i am right now it's an opulent resort known as lake las vegas that is symbol i of the boom and bust. that whole lake las vegas resort where the president is doing his debate prep. it's modeled after an italian village. it went bankrupt the last few years. it's now sort of coming back and the president is hoping that is a microcosm that he's pushing this recovery along slowly, not just mere in nevada but all along the country. it's interesting to hear john roberts about chris christie raising expectations for mitt romney. the president at a rally in vegas last night tried to do just the opposite and lower expectations. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who is going to have the best zinger. [you are [. >> i don't know about that. who's going to put the most points on the board [crowd shouts "you are"] no, governor ro
who in fact are concerned about the economy, concerned about the direction of the country. they are not in crisis, but they are sure anxious, they are clipping those coupons, going to walmart, driving a little further for a tank of gas. what mitt romney did last night that spoke to those women was display leadership, display direction, display clear voice, clear eye assessment of what is going on in the country and it obviously stuck. and if he can win with women like that across the country, as he succeeded in that focus group, that would bode very well for his chances to unseat president obama. megyn: the president took shots at mitt romney for not offering a real plan. plan, should he become the president. one of the sound bytes the walmart moms apparently reacted to was mitt romney laying out his five-point plan here. listen. >> my plan has five basic parts. one, get us energy independent, north american energy independent that creates about 4 million jobs. number two, open up more trade, particularly in latin america. crackdown on china if and when they cheat. number
